4-Watertowers ForCarol.com Movie Review(Mobster Family Kicks Ass)

Under the witness protection program the “Blake” family moves to a small town in France. Giovanni Manzoni (played by Robert De Niro) is now Fred Blake.  He ratted on the mob and he, and his entire family, are now in hiding.

the familyUnfortunately, neither he nor his family (wife Maggie, Michelle Pfeiffer, daughter Belle, Dianna Agron (Glee), and son Warren, John D’Leo) take shit from anyone and almost instantly get in trouble.  An unwise entry in a school newspaper finds it way back to the mob in the USA and the hit is on.

To see what happens you have to watch the movie.

“The Family” does not have a boring moment in it.  It is bloody, funny, and at times intense.  Not for kids and there are f-words.

Go to IMDb for more information.  We watched this at the Tracy, CA CineMark theater.

Drive Safe!  Never Forget.

  1. […] “The Family” Movie Review […]


  2. Its tone was just a little too off for me to really let it work its magic with its humor. And even without the tonal-issues, I don’t think I would have laughed because it just isn’t funny. Good review.
